Freud postulated that the personality contains both conscious and unconscious parts, called the id, ego and superego. The id is the primitive part of our personality which seeks pleasure and immediate gratification. ego is the part of our personality that operates within the bounds of reality to seek the acceptable ways to satisfy the id's unreasonable demands. The superego is the part of our personality which satisfies our morals and elements of conscious.
